Forum: feature_films Subject: Re: Q about where these films come from?

Films on this section come from a variety of different sources. The films I've uploaded come from Beta SP masters, one-inch video masters or DVDs. I know that others have uploaded files from VHS sources. Granted VHS might not be the best quality, but I see this collection as a constant work in progress. If we find a better quality copy of a given film (either from a better video source or with a film that isn't so splicey or scratched or a TV print), it will be to upload it and replace the lesser quality file.

Also, in general, a higher bitrate means higher quality, but the source's quality (film quality, telecine transfer quality, video quality) will trump a high bitrate anytime.
